This violin has/had a fingerboard that veered to the right. It didn't effect my playing,,just bothered me. But it also had dips in the fingerboard along the e string which has effected my playing. Some of the high points acted like frets which has a negative impact on tone,,,,like duhhh. I lived with it until today. Today it was just too much. The e string was vibrating a lot under my finger.
So I block sanded the dips away (and yes keeping the scoop) and sanded the veering away. Right now its drying. Tomorrow it will be back together and working.
Not quite sure what you mean by "veered". Do you mean down the center of the fingerboard (from the nut) is not in direct line with the end pin ?
If that's the case then the whole neck is not centered on the violin and I don't know how you fixed it without removing the neck from the body and re-aligning it.
As far as "scoop" goes, are you sure you now have the proper scoop after sanding out the bumps and divots.
